Lake Biwa is a very spectacular lake from a global perspective. Covering an area of about 1/6 of Shiga Prefecture, Lake Biwa is larger than the 23 wards of Tokyo, and its deepest point is over 100 meters.

Lake Biwa was created about 4 million years ago when monkeys began to walk on two legs.

It is the third oldest lake in the world and has never run dry in its history since its birth. There are few lakes on earth that have never dried up. For this reason, Lake Biwa is still home to many endemic fish species from long ago.

In addition, "Okishima," where people live on an island in a freshwater lake, is said to be unique in the world.

Shirahige Shrine is located in Takashima City, Shiga Prefecture, a well-known power spot. It is well known as a god of longevity and is crowded with many tourists. Shirahige Shrine has a long history and has existed for about 2,000 years.

Shrines that have existed since about B.C. are still considered power spots.

If you look at Lake Biwa with such a long history in mind, you may feel the scenery is different.

We invite you to enjoy the stunning view from the lake at GLAM CRUISE.
